It is with great sadness that reports the passing of Rebbetzin Shulamit Ezrachi a”h. She was 91.

The Rebbetzin was the wife of Rav Boruch Mordechai Ezrachi, rosh yeshiva of Yeshiva Ateres Yisroel and member of the Moetzes Gedolei Hatorah of Degel Hatorah, and a daughter of the famed mashgiach Rav Meir Chodosh, who biography she authored.

The Rebbetzin was born in Yerushalayim, a daughter of Rav Meir and Rebbetzin Tziviah leah Chodoesh.

When she was young, she traveled with her mother to Lithuania to receive the brocha of the Chafetz Chaim together with her older brother, Rav Aharon Chodosh, mashgiach of the Mir Yeshiva, both of whom were privileged to see the holy face of the Chofetz Chaim.

She grew up in the area of the Chevron yeshiva in Geula and from a young age was connected to the yeshiva. She observed the compassionate leadership of her father and mother towards the talmidim, as the family lived on the first floor of the yeshiva. Their home was open to yeshiva students day and night, every day of the week. On the counter in the kitchen there were always cookies intended for the members of the yeshiva, who frequently came in to make themselves a cup of tea and avails themselves of the food there.

She was one of the first students of Seminart Beis Ya’akov in Yerushalayim.

She married Rav Baruch Mordechai, one of the esteemed bochurim of the Chevron yeshiva who would go on to become one of the gedolei hador.

The Rebbetzin was an outstanding mechaneches who touches the lives of an untold number of students.

Her house, like her parents’, was wide open to all her husband’s talmidim, who would enter without knocking, knowing that they were welcome. She was the aim hayeshiva of Ateres Yisroel.

Over the years, she authored a number of biographical books, among them about her father Rav Meir Chodosh and a comprehensive biography of the Chofetz Chaim.

She is survived by her husband, the Rosh Yeshiva, her son, Rav Bentzion, and four daughters.

The levayah will be held tomorrow at her home on Rechov Kasuto in the Bayit Vegan neighborhood in Yerushalayim, followed by kevurah on Har Hazeisim.

Yehi zichrah boruch.
